19 Nov xGCare: Time for a Leading-Edge Care Management Platform
Melodi Brown, RN, MSN, CCM, Vice President, Care Management, xG Health Solutions, November 19, 2015
As care management has become increasingly complex and expensive, the need for effective workflow management, evidence-based clinical decision support and performance management software has become equally pressing. However, until now, the software options for healthcare organizations have been less than ideal.
Earl P. Steinberg, MD, MPP, CEO of xG Health, says “Care management software developed for payers is often expensive, complex, and lacking effective care management protocols. On the other hand, generic workflow software lacks evidence-based decision support and impactful clinical assessments and fails to ensure consistency across users.”
Fortunately, a solution is at hand. Continues Dr. Steinberg, “I’m pleased to announce the launch of xGCare, xG Health’s care management platform that helps healthcare organizations improve quality of care, enhance the patient experience, and reduce overall costs. xGCare is a revolutionary, turnkey solution that combines meaningful clinical content with provider-tested workflows. xGCare can be implemented quickly and cost-effectively, is supported by our xGLearn training solution, and integrates seamlessly with xG Health’s other products and services, such as Advanced Case and Condition Management.”
xGCare combines the in-depth experience of xG Health’s expert clinicians with population health-management process improvements developed and refined over 20 years at leading institutions. The xGCare platform helps the care team organize, simplify, and prioritize care management by facilitating consistent application of best clinical practices, eliminating redundant activities, minimizing documentation time, and maximizing the use of nonlicensed clinical staff.
xGCare is preloaded with features that make care management more effective. These include evidence-based patient assessments for dozens of conditions that automate producing patient-specific action plans. Additional features include streamlined workflows, data analytics-driven decision support (including identification of gaps in care), patient self-management action plans for specific clinical conditions, and automated reports on key measures of success and care management productivity.
Perhaps best of all, xGCare can start helping healthcare organizations improve almost immediately.
Notes Melodi Brown, RN, MSN, CCM, vice president of Care Management at xG Health, “xGCare can be implemented typically within six to twelve weeks, saving accountable care organizations, providers, and payers significant time and money and helping accelerate their transformation to more efficient and effective healthcare.”
